Good morning.  :-)

Yesterday I had the last portion of bean and chorizo stew from the freezer.  I remembered posting about it ages ago, I think when this blog was still called 'My 30-30 Challenge, so I looked back and here it is, all nicely costed out.  It'd cost more to make now, wouldn't it?
And yes, it was that long ago - I trust my freezer.

Today's plans:
B:  muesli and yogurt
L:  hummus and carrot batons.  OK, the hummus is a bit naughty as far as a strict diet is concerned but it needs to be used up and the portion is quite small.
D:  easy tuna and lemon spaghetti; fruit yogurt
Ss:  apples

From the freezer:
Just the hummus today.

The frugal factor:
Just about all of it.  Tinned tuna is not costly and the other ingredients (or their substitutes, e.g. dried parsley instead of fresh, are also cheap and I have them all in fridge and cupboard.

The recipe is actually a Thermomix recipe but, as it is just one portion which looks a bit small for thermo-ing, I shall be making it on the hob and, if it is nice, will be posting about it later.  If it's not, I won't!

Have a fantastically frugal day today, everyone!


  1. You'll never be without a quick meal as long as you have at least one can of tuna in your pantry!
